Goulet Guests: Spotlight on Kara Benz of Boho Berry

There is a new phenomenon happening in the planning, stationery, and fountain pen world called Bullet Journaling. Bullet journaling was created by Ryder Caroll and is a flexible system for self organization. It has spread across the stationery world and been embraced by a number of bloggers, including the subject of today's Goulet Guests episode, Kara Benz.
